#RainbowSnippets: Rise of the Alpha Squirrel
Rainbow Snippets is a group of authors who get together every Saturday to post a 6 line snippet from a work in progress, or a work that’s already been published. There’s tons of fun reading every week, so check them out here!
Last week I introduced the red panda twins, who were named after Devon Hunter. (This is important information for the blog tour and giveaway starting Thursday. Hint, hint) This week I’m introducing Alice and Rudy, the pygmy fainting goat kids. (Mom’s a pygmy goat, Dad’s a fainting goat. It was my daughter’s idea.) This snippet happens shortly after the “Protect the burgers!” of last week. 😀
Alice, dodging a sneak attack by Hunter from under the table, ran straight into the back of Vince’s knees. “Hey!” he yelled, and made a grab for her with his free arm, but she hopped merrily over it and kept running. With a happy bleat, she scrambled between the two men and ran into the undergrowth.
Her brother raced after her, until Devon popped out from behind a small tree, paws spread wide and trills of excitement filling the air. Rudy jumped sideways, then stiffened and fell over.
Alice popped out of the bushes. Her bleats sounded like a laugh as she jumped over him, headed for the picnic table.
As a bonus, here’s a video of some baby fainting goats (no fainting though)
And they have a couple of live webcams, or goatcams, where you can watch the goats do what goats do. (Link is found on the YouTube page.)
